Facebook Website Speed Test from Around the World [Infographic]

We test Facebook website speed and page load time from around the world to see how Facebook handles their massive amounts of web traffic.

Facebook is the world’s second most popular site. Each day hundreds of millions of users log-on to Facebook creating huge traffic loads. To better understand how Facebook meets this challenge we analyzed how quickly Dotcom-Monitor’s Facebook Page fully loads in a browser from several worldwide locations. To acquire this data we used BrowserView Monitoring™, which was set to use an Internet Explorer browser, monitoring every 30 minutes for five days.
